Long Island Black Leaders
July 26, 2016
Dear Community Leader,
Based on the latest acts of violence against civilians and police, local Long Island Black Leaders are standing together to condemn the violence and issue a call to action for peace and enforcement of laws that protect the value of all human lives.

As a Community Leader, you are cordially invited to join this collective call to action.
Our goal is to unite, collaborate, and empower the black community and also encourage the inclusion of all community residents that are also concerned about the acts of violence that effect the quality of life for all on Long Island.

We continue our call to action by extending an invitation to engage in a morning dedicated to strategic planning, policy development, and implementation to determine how best to build strong communities on Long Island:
